FOR YOUR EYES ONLY – With the many national security and intelligence topics that American Defense News (ADN) cannot adequately cover every day – in collaboration with the the Center for American Defense Studies (CADS) – we are providing our readers a PDB:

Not the President’s Daily Brief, but almost as good – Paul’s Daily Briefing.

Today’s PDB Includes a variety of critical issues such as the China Threat and how U.S. needs to focus on access denial against Chinese military, Russia’s ramped up military threat in Ukraine and elsewhere puts the Pentagon on high alert. DC National Guard deploys its new immediate reaction force after a black nationalist extremist attacks Capitol Police checkpoint, India needs its own defense doctrine not just copy U.S. strategies.

Plus, China knows South Korea is the weak link in U.S. alliance network.

And this week’s Special Operation Update – Everything you need to this week know in one place.

TODAY’S PDB HIGHLIGHTS:

Homeland Security

Guard deploys immediate reaction force at Capitol after officer, suspect, killed in attack on police there. DC National Guard deployed an immediate reaction force of troops at Capitol Hill Friday afternoon following an attack on police officers there earlier in the day that resulted in the death of one officer and the black nationalist extremist suspect.

Do Russia & China Have ‘Limited’ or ‘Unlimited’ Political Goals?

China Threat

U.S. and Its Allies Must Focus on Access Denial Against China’s Military

China Knows South Korea Is Weakest Link in U.S.’ Asia Alliances

Modi is right about India needing and indigenous defense doctrine. Army staff colleges can’t keep studying US

North Korea Threat

Contentious US missile shield back in limelight

U.S. Military

Special Operations News Update – April 5, 2021 | SOF News. SOCOM diversity chief reassigned, AFSOC’s A-29 light attack planes, ASD SO/LIC, Russia in the Arctic, border crisis, Sahel, Mozambique.

Suez Canal blockage shows need for Navy focus on maritime chokepoints, Elaine Luria says. As Rep. Elaine Luria, D-Norfolk, watched the struggle to refloat a giant container ship in the Suez canal — a waterway she transited a half-dozen times in her Navy career — she kept thinking about the cold of the Arctic and the coral lagoons of the South China Sea.

This is the same disgusting game the liberals play every time they get in office, slash the military and redirect those funds to entitlements because they know once they give the freeloaders something, it won’t be taken away. Then Republicans get in and rebuild the military only for the libs to do the same again when they regain power. It is a driving force behind us not being able to reduce the debt.

If you voted against Trump for Biden you knew this was coming without a doubt. Now pay the price, you all diserve it. President Trump warned you. I pray that the 7 million of us who voted for Trump servive this Russia and China threat. The rest of you go where you belong. I am sorry that i served to protect you for over 20 years. Would never do it again,

America. is my Homeland, what the DNC is doing is Treason, there is no 2 ways about it, they have lost their minds! You can’t ignore the Constitution! The Anarchists in Chicago are still at it, Ayers, Dorn, Holder, Obama, Kerry, same treasonous traitors! communist to the core! In 2016 Obama and HRC rigged their own party’s Presidential Nomination Election!
If they will rig their own party’s elections they will rig any and all elections! If I were in a position of power, I would meet with the seal teams, put together the very best, and I would take these people out!
Obama, Kerry, Clinton, Holder, Soros, Jarrett, Rice, Oh hell, the whole damn DNC! Then I’d kill all the rioters, then have a nationwide Barbeque!
